Unlocking the Secrets of Flight: Pole tricks class
Fundamentals of spins – Groups 1 – 4
Starting with a dance based warmup and core workout, we quickly move into, what I like to call, Fundamentals of spins. There is a technique to everything in this class and it’s all about how to use as little physical effort as possible while achieving the greatest spins.
We move from basic 101 spins like step arounds and Fireman spins, to more complicated One arm dislocated (candy cane) flying spins. I then like to transition these spins from static into spin pole
variations. This class can be very basic, or very advanced, depending on the level of the students.
